not to reload this gun when it comes to hispanic. >> what else did senator graham say? still licking their wounds from an election night trouncing. >> if you had said to me three weeks ago, mitt romney would get fewer votes than john mccain, and it looks like he's 2 million fewer, i would have been dumbfounded. >> dumbfounded. is all this a sign that republicans are now ready to meet in the middle on issues like immigration and taxes? will they move faster on immigration? you can join our conversation on twitter. you can find me at @tamronhall and my team at @newsnation. having you ship my gifts couldn't be easier. well, having a ton of locations doesn't hurt. and my daughter loves the santa. oh, ah sir. that is a customer. let's not tell mom.

by senators john mccain, kelly ayotte and lindsey graham close to target the president's staff, specifically the potential nomination of ambassador susan rice as secretary of state. >> we will do whatever's necessary to block the nomination that's within our power as far as susan rice is concerned. >> you don't end up on every single major sunday show without affirmatively putting yourself out there of wanting to carry forward a message on behalf of the administration. >> i don't trust her. the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better and if she didn't know better she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> president obama is far from conceding defeat. channeling his own inner mama grizzly. he bears his teeth. >> i'm the president. and i'm always responsible. the suggestion that anybody in my team, whether secretary of state, or u.n. ambassador, anybody on my team, would play politics or mislead when we've lost four of our own, governor, is offensive. >> yesterday, the claws were out. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should g
. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with john mccain's clip if we can. dan, this is john mccain on -- john mccain by the way who voted to approve condoleezza rice as secretary of state. talking about susan rice. here's the clip. >> susan rice should have known better and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i would do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> john: that was the man who thought sarah palin was qualified to be president talking about someone who doesn't understand. now not to be outdone senator lindsey graham, the most interesting of all southern republicans i would say came out a few hours later and took a break from his momentarily bouts of sanity to say this. >> die trust her in two ways. if she didn't kn
for the president. he hit back during his press conference. let's listen. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received? and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> that's the slow burn for the president i'd say. this morning mccain had some strong words for his former opponent, the president. let's listen to mccain. >> i know people don't come to spontaneous demonstrations with rockets and mortars, and for the president of the united states for two weeks afterwards to deny that that was the case is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> one of mccain's main allies, lindsay graham of south carolina, also responded to the president. he said, quote, mr. president, don't think for one minute i'm going to hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you failed as commander in chief before, during, and after the attack. what's behind all this anger? jonathan alter is
connell, john cornyn, lindsey graham, saxby chambliss. now, if you're mitch mcconnell and we've been sitting there for years ago we would have had unanimity that niche was keening of the republican party in kentucky. and that was not even a contest for who was the utterly acknowledged leader. and we get to the 2010 elections and he put every resource he could to every attempt, every string he could pull to keep rand paul from winning the republican nomination. and failed mr. luther if your looking at this from mcconnell's perspective, knowing that several other republicans who ran for the senate this time would not promise going in that they would support mitch mcconnell, and you know that you have the potential for a primary challenge at portage and no longer controlled, your willingness to compromise on some of these critical issues may be itself compromised. if you're john cornyn, you would've stayed out of the race for the republican nomination for the senate this time around, but you sat back and watched as the very conservative and powerful lieutenant governor, the most powerful figure
stress over. graham spanier was arraigned today on charges he tried to cover up allegations that jerry sandusky was sexually abusing boys on the school campus. among the charges, obstruction of justice, endangering the welfare of children and purgery. bail is $125,000. but it is unsecured, so that means he doesn't have to pay it unless he fails to show up for a court date. he will not be allowed to travel outside the state without the court's permission. >>> after meeting with with the president, one militant group in mali is urging other groups to start a political dialogue and it's an important group, at least from our understanding when we were covering the story. the armed group is one of many to have taken over the northern part of mali. what does that mean? state department spokesman welcomed the announcement that says the group has only talked the talk and need to walk the work and work on a deal. it's been 461 days since the u.s. lost its top credit rating. it is time to ask what are we going to do to get it back. and now, our fourth story. president obama won re-election last
of hurricane katrina. >> michael graham told me out on staten island as well. more than half a million households are still without power. 40,000 homes on the rockaway peninsulas. deb fayerick is there and how angry are people? >> people are so frustrated and angry. it's been only 12 days since the storm hit. you're not too far from jfk. that light is basically illuminating a corner. that means there's no heat. boilers can't work. there are no washer triers, no way to charge a cell phone. no way to use a computer to access any sort of outside help, so they feel they're just being cut off here and they cannot understand why atlantic power authority, which is a state-owned company, can't get the lights on. we spoke earlier to couple of people at a rally and they were so frustrated. take a listen. >> restore the power to our community now! now! we're done! >> you know, and you just, you can see that level really, they just don't know what to do. they open for example the city opened up a center where you can go and get additional sort of food stamp benefits and welfare benefits, money. pe
section. >> two plus two equals seven. everybody knows that. >> stephanie: okay. >> i'm sure tim graham will enjoy that at myth busters. >> stephanie: love you tim. kids we keep this ramshackle operation running by going to pc dot? for many of us our jobs are demanding. most of my day consists of cocktail hours so i need to package my work into a neat little bow. that's why i rely on my pc. it's the powerfully simple tool that keeps you connected to your business wherever you are. it turns any pc, tablet or smart phone into your office computer. you remember save, edit and send files? the olden days, may friend. now your work computer will be everywhere you are whether you're working from home, traveling, you will never have to carry a flash drive again. >> do you remember when i left all of the audio files at home and i had to race home and get them. >> stephanie: i remember that. >> that was before go it my pc. i didn't like that. >> stephanie: do you remember when i had to go back home to get my show prep, and then the arm came down on my car and i yelled the f-word right on the air.
of the nor'easter pounding the east coast at this hour. and former penn state president graham spanier was arrested on charges of trying to hush up sex abuse allegations against jerry sandusky. he has been released on bail. now we're going to take you back to "hardball." >>> welcome back to "hardball." maybe the only people more depressed than republicans today are comedians nail miss out on the comedic potential of a romney administration and also lost old friends last night, todd akin last night, joe walsh, allen west. bill maher warned us about the risk last week. let's take a look. >> that's it. that's the election. it is your choice, america, because for me it's a win-win. if it's obama, america wins. if it's romney, comedy wins. >> well, last night america won, comedy lost, you might say. bill maher the host of "real time" an amazing television show. with bill maher on hbo. bill, karl rove has offered some material. is he the baghdad bob of the 2012 election, the last guy to admit something's new and something bad is happening? >> it was a little hitler's bunker, wasn't it? i wan
in mind for 2014. among those that are up in 2014, mitch mcconnell, john cornyn, lindsey graham, saxby chambliss if we were sitting here four years ago we would have unanimity that he was the king of the republican party in kentucky and there wasn't even a contest for who was the elder li acknowledged leader, then we get to the 2010 elections and he put every resource that he could come every attempt come every string he could pull to keep rand paul from running and winning miserably. if you look at this from mccaul's perspectives note that several of the republicans that ran for the senate this time wouldn't promise going in that they would support mitch mcconnell. and you know that you have the potential for a primary challenge in a party that you no longer control. your willingness to compromise on some of these critical issues may be itself compromised. if you are john cornyn, you would have stayed out of the race for the republican nomination for the senate this time around but you sat back and watched as the conservative and powerful lieutenant governor, the most powerful togethe
cain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. i don't think there is any debate in this country when you have four americans killed, that's a problem. we've got to get to the bottom of it. there needs to be accountability. we've got to bring those who carried it out to justice. they won't get any debate from me on that. when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target then they've got a problem with me. >> the president is right. these republican accusations are outrageous. the truth is this. ambassador rice went on the sunday shows after the tragedy, said the attacks began as protests and they were hijacked by extremists. she said this because that's what the cia believed. that's what the cia told her with an intelligence briefing given to her that very day. yet
. >> republican senator lindsay graham on "face the nation" this morning, molly ball, take a listen and see what he said on the other side. >> we have a national security failure in the making. i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi, before, during and after the attack, if general petraeus doesn't testify. from my point of view, it's absolutely essential that he give testimony before the congress. >> molly, how is this benghazi back and forth likely to work out in light of these petraeus developments? >> well, i think we have to remember how much we still don't know. we still, i mean the petraeus story just breaking on friday, and details still coming out about what was discovered and how. i mean we originally thought that this was more about classified information and now it seems like it's more about harassment. i think we have to be sort of humble in the face of all the facts that we still don't have. i think a.b. is right that at this point, they look like two separate stories. it doesn't look like they're entangled, except to the extent that petraeus is a pl
. arguing there is no political mandate. is that true? joining me now, michael graham, a radio host and a columnist with "the boston herald", and julie roginsky, former political adviser to frank lautenberg and a fox news contributor. so the washington times comes out with an editorial that says he has no mandate. they say that he is, pointed out that he's the first president since george washington to be reelected with fewer popular votes than he was in the first term and say he's got no mandate. michael, true? >> uh, it's hard to see the mandate of a campaign that seemed to be focused almost entirely on whether or not the republicans were going to break into your home and steal your feminine hygiene products. so i can't really say he ran on this plan to do x, he's going to get it. but i don't think that means he's a lame duck. he has the power of the presidency, it's a very powerful tool. he's got the media, obviously, very cooperative. so let's just say he's a limping duck might be a better answer. megyn: is -- julie, your thoughts. because the point of the editorial is they say
] . >> john dan on twitter has a question, does this mean bill graham's website can now go back on youtube as a cult. >> exactly. we have had only one catholic. there was the first race everywhere there were no wasps in the top spot either. mormons should be very very proud. >> and the only protestant was president obama. >> exactly. >> stephanie: john, the important news, diane sawyer absolutely was not drunk. no one has a more exhausting work schedule than john fugelsang. >> i'm the giving tree. >> stephanie: a source close to the situation, whoever gets her wine, for anyone who thinks that diane sawyer was drunk on the air just doesn't know her. she was extremely exhausted from her work schedule. although he just posted that earlier video from the '90s where she is drink wine on set. >> i'm not allowed to make fun of anybody drinking on election night. >> by the way you guys did an awesome job. >> we were on the air for six hours live. and gore was just masterful. >> stephanie: yeah. >> they are all really good broadcasters, but being on the air with all of them it ha
director mike forlmorrell. >> others including senator lindsey graham it's likely petraeus will be called on at some point. >> i hate what happened to general petraeus for his family and the families involved, but we have four americans dead in benghazi, a failure in the making. i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. so from my point of view, it's absolutely essential that he give testimony before the congress so we can figure out benghazi. >> nbc news has reached out to general petraeus and paula broadwell, and so far there's been no response. jill kelley and her husband, scott, released a statement to "the new york times" yesterday, asking for privacy for their family. >> andrea mitchell, what happened here? the fbi's investigating this. a woman sends some -- first of all, tell us the nature of these e-mails that would prompt an fbi investigation. >> well, here's the situation. the woman, whom we have confirmed was jill kelley who was a married woman in tampa who did some social and
rumbling on that topic. >> bill: the phrase i see a lot today is broken brand. lindsay graham was one of them. schmidt and stevens said we have to look at this republican party and our outreach when you look at, for example president obama getting 93% of the black vote. 71% of the hispanic vote. 55% of the female vote. 60% of the young vote. isn't this -- let's say to be polite, this conversation is going to be taking place within the republican party if not a real war right? >> yes. it could be a conversation. it could be a war. it could be be something in between. here's my sense of it right now. presently. i think the first thing republicans have to ask themselves a threshold strategic question which is separate from outreach. do you want to be a presidential party or do you want to content yourself with being a house majority party? and possibly competitive in senate races? now, that's a strategic choice you could make. you could say look, we have the 2010 census redistricting. we have a certain number of seats.
taken by executive fiat, which is even more anathema to senators mccain, graham, and others. that is a sideshow, a three-ring circus, and have a couple of side rings, that remained in the bombings as well. one thing i would say about the fiscal cliff, at one level you could say there's no great sense of urgency. as many people have said, it is more a fiscal slump than clef. it is not like we're going to plunge into the horrible up this immediately. there are many things that an administration can do to ameliorate the impact of many of the tax cuts and of the budget cuts. there are some significant amounts of discussion about how you deal with budgets. you can move accounts aren't among the things related to public safety. it is not quite the same as it was when we had the shutdown of the government in 1995, but there is a lot of discretion there, and among other things, you can have an administration that the sides -- that decides to not to effectively change withholding rates to keep the immediate impact of the tax cuts from taking hold. you can do that for only certain tim
. >> stephanie: wow. we have been talking about the demographics. i think lindsay graham said it they are running out of old angry white guys aren't they? >> it's what i told y'all, the first time i ever made a prediction in public or private, because -- of course -- >> stephanie: what is the point of saying -- >> the reason that he won was go tv. and they had an organization. i got a call -- i came in out of the mountain at 2:00 on tuesday to vote, and i got my first in my history my first old fart call. they called me -- they called me from obama and wanted to know if i had a problem getting to the polls, and wanted to come by and pick me up. >> stephanie: fortunately you don't have a very distinctive voice. >> oh, god -- no they just did a great job. and last week i was counting on -- they set up at virginia tech that the lines were two and a half to three hours students coming out to vote. >> stephanie: yep. >> but a lot of it has to do of course, your show -- >> stephanie: it's mostly my show. >> the conservatives control the radio airwaves and cable t
hosts cbs's "face the nation," with david axelrod, south carolina republican senator lindsay graham. at noon starting on 90.1 in the d.c. area, sirius xm 119. you can also hear us on our free app for your iphone, android, and blackberry. brought to you as a public service by the networks and by c-span radio. >> i need some help over here. >> he just rolled himself out. >> he was issued this today. he has taken 10. "that's ridiculous. >> at some point, he could stop breathing from too much of narcotics and we will be doing cpr. >> where is sergeant robert yates today? >> we ended up following him after the plane ride for many months. he ended up entering himself into an innovative program at walter reed where they ended up using acupuncture, meditation, other techniques to wean him off all the drugs he had been on. through this program, he was able to walk out of walter reed on his own two feet. i really commend the military for two things. one in, allowing us to tell this story, both the good and bad, and for recognizing this problem. by recognizing that there is this problem of ove
of the senators now, graham said that she's interested in immigration reform. they have to get involved in serious legislation to make sure that something happens and weapon recognize that we have particularly in the latino community, are active, powerful and influential and they're going to do something about it. i see a lot of change this year. it's a real awakening on some of these issues. as for the fiscal cliff we're going to be able to negotiate and we're going to be able to do something about a combination of taxes, and programs, discretionary programs. so i'm looking forward to the negotiations. >> i hope so, congresswoman. it's interesting. i'm sure you've seen clips on t.v. of george bush talking about mandates and political capital that he earned. obviously, what the president truly has a mandate. this is two electoral land slides i mean landslides in a row. he said obviously, you know, basically this question over and overcame up and americans voted for, you know, the rich to pay their fair share right? >> caller: that's absolutely true. it was very clear in this election that the poin
that senator graham and i laid out and brought structure -- >> 2007. >> yeah. last time and what happened was obviously the other side of the aisle said we're not doing immigration reform. i think they're going to want to do it now. that's at the top of the list. because the nation demands it, needs it and, again, i think in the exit polls, 2/3 of americans basically agreed with the concept of real immigration reform. along those lines. you know, wasn't in any detail in an exit poll, but the basic thrust of the question would lead you to believe they would agree with that proposal. second thing we have to do, both candidates, president obama, governor romney talked about making us more energy independent. there are a lot of things we can do that might lead to compromise. first, two things have been done by the administration that people forget about. the cafe standards when fully implemented will reduce the need of importing oil for gasoline. isn't that incredible? and the greenhouse gas standards have really changed the way power plants have to function. that plus the free market force o
